Drinking Window: 2022 - 2023
Luis Felipe Edwards is a reliable name for those seeking typicity and value from Chile. Made from fruit grown in the coastal Leyda region, this Chardonnay has seen a portion of the wine aged in French oak for 4 to 5 months, before the final blend in stainless steel tanks. It's not a complex wine, but if you're looking for an easy drinking New World expression of the grape, this fits the bill, offering creamy, vanilla oak character, allied with melon and tropical fruit flavours.
